Yesterday, along with our esteemed President, I turned another year older. To celebrate, I had a lovely dinner with my friend, Blogless Kwilty Karen, on Wednesday evening. We were living on the wild side and decided to enjoy some great salads at Panera Bread. We are SO wild...we shut that place DOWN! Ahem...never mind they close at 9:00. ;o)
Karen is such a sweetheart and she makes the most drool-worthy quilts. She works with 30s quite often and I always love the quilts she makes. But I don't have 30s in my stash....because I don't do pastel....or pink.....or pastel.....or anything remotely "sweet"...or pastel.
now, thanks to Karen, I have some 30s in the stash. Of course we both laughed when I immediately said "well I'll just overdye them"....because I always say that about anything that seems remotely "sweet" or pastel! Thank you for the lovely gift, and the fun evening out, Karen!!
Last night, with another year under my belt, I spent the evening knitting...
and the Noro Striped Scarf is moving along! You can tell you're getting either a) old or b) content when you're excited to be staying home on your birthday evening so you can knit! I should also say my hubs is up in Canada fishing. But please don't feel sorry for me! Believe me, he almost didn't go on the trip because he knew the dates were going to fall over my birthday. Honestly dear...it's just another day honey...Go! Go fishing! I'll be perfectly fine ordering a pizza...in my PJs....knitting....and controlling the remote! ;o) Happy birthday to me!
And to further the celebration, I had today off from the office. It's been a nice lazy day...filled with some knitting, lots of web surfing, a little this...a little that....and some prep work!
Prepping because I received this in the mail the other day...
Fun huh? A fabric postcard!
Blogless Kwilty Karen and I, and 5 other ladies, are in a quilting small group together....a group that has a fondness for reproduction/civil war quilts.
we're having a day long....dawn to late night sewing retreat! Are these not the cutest invites! Karen and Kay are co-hosting the event at Kay's clubhouse. I'll be up before the dawn....getting ready to make the short trip north for a day of fun!
In the meantime, this evening,
I'm trying to get some strip sets done so I can make great progress during the day tomorrow on the next quilt! I'm also packing the knitting, and the applique quilt...you know, for some diversity!
Looking forward to fun times...this evening...tomorrow...and the rest of the weekend! Hope you're doing something fun too!
